Weeks, a few general comments on your thread, if I may add my voice to the chorus of those who admire all that you are doing …

For the mental effort it takes to document and explain your techniques, thank you
For your willingness to respect the tradition, and carry it forward, but not be enslaved by it, many thanks
For your careful study of fundamentals, and attention to detail, I’m not sure who to thank
For your sense of form and drama, we can thank unnamed higher powers
For your outsized talents … well, you can thank your parents :)

Pat1940, thank you. Yes it's true, i like textures so much, because of the flat digital field and the option to increase "materiality" of each painting with "digital fesh". A lot to say about that.

Hi Ceasar, thank man for your great comments. Well, with Velazquez there is a lot to learn and specially with digital tools like Artrage and Painter.
Usually, i don't like to mix up different softs, but in that case, the juice and the grid are very powerful with Painter. In progress...

Coops, thank you very much for your support and comments. I like to focus on details. You know what i'm talking about. :)

Lima, thank you so much :o

SCP, thank you, :o:o

Thank you Mannafig :)

Chinapete, whaouu :o:o:o very nice and encouraging comment. I appreciate so much. Thanks.

Thank you Silvy :)

Thank you Earle for the words...

Here is another shot, exploring these inexhaustible tools and textures...
The subject, not sure what it talks about... :D
100 % AR3

You're able to turn any sticker type into a magical wand to produce stunning and unique artpieces, dear Weeks. You mentally see in advance and in depth what a pattern may eventually provide as a gorgeous outcome, I guess.

Well you make such great compositions. In the hands of the right musician the violin does play so sweetly. And so it is with the artrage I guess. wonderful stuff. I love the figure you did in beta of the man. I loved the green version of the man with hat.

Weeks
03-28-2012, 02:47 AM
Screenpainter, thank you. What a nice comment. I agree with you, i like the "green" version and the first rough too. The last one is more "conventional", and for that, i'm looking for other styles, other forms. Not easy at all. :)

Dear Ceasar, every time a nice word, a nice comment for everyone. Thank you and thank you for being yourself a great painter.
I'll try to "art pack" few of my brushes, soon :) but i use a lot from others out there.

Thank you Alexandra :o your work is very inspirational too.

Thank you so much Mannafig :):)

Have you hear about Al.chemy ? (no offense Artrage :D )
Very interesting to "deconstruct" the forms.

Here is a try.

Hi Weeks, brilliant additions, the Velasquez, as well as Idlan. Great texture that you've produced in the latter. I also really like that third alchemy shot.:)

SCP
03-28-2012, 11:28 AM
Hey Weeks great stuff! I enjoyed using alchemy a while back I have a image in my Gallery that was imported into ArtRage from alchemy http://www2.ambientdesign.com/gallery/files/5/9/6/2/destruction_sm.jpg (http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums/../gallery/files/5/9/6/2/destruction_sm.jpg)

You have inspired me to open it up again.;)
Keep up the great work!:):):)

Fascinating images.
Without some noise and chaos we would be deprived of our creativity able to see some order, pattern and complex rule intuitively, thus also to be able to perceive and react in a natural environment.

Weeks
03-29-2012, 05:04 AM
Hi Ceasar, may be we have to look for something new. I don't know what but for me, it's this constant round trip between the past and the future.
These tools helps us to improve this goal. Anyway, thank you for the words.

SCP, i've seen yours and i like it. Thank you.

Belvrog, thank you. The third is much more construct, but the tools is very difficult to manage.

Gxhpainter, thank you. Yes, my attempt to explore these forms is fascinating but hard to...

Coops, you're kind. Thank you. :)

Well, a new try... Not easy... :D

Hi SCP, i wanted to show a kind of progression. There is a mistake in the publishing order. In this last group, the last one is the first one. Thank you anyway. :)

Hi Pat1940, thank you buddy, :)
In fact, i would like to embrace all kind of style with my personal "touch", but i have so much to learn and practice !

GxhPainter, yes, :o the cintiq is a great tool. I don't want to show up, but i have to admit that it rocks despite it disturbs me a lot... :cool:

Talking about style :rolleyes:, here is a quick shot i've done, a sort of "stamp" or something, i don't know. Kind of "Jules Verne" portrait...

I used AR3 of course and Al.chemy for the "prophetic" background. ;)

Tell me what you think ?

Best,

Weeks

Weeks
04-10-2012, 11:15 AM
Geoff, :) thank you for the compliment. I'm not sure about what you say : imagination is a point of view. Maybe it's a place where you can put thing with others and see what you got ? :eek:

Belvrog, thank you so much. I have to get out of my path. Looking for new areas, new ideas... Not so easy ;)

Oh Coops, thank you so much. I knew the background could hit you. Something in the air ;)

For this one, at the start, i just wanted to paint a close up, and you know what, as i went along, it reminded me the head of Yorge, somewhere, from Umberto Eco' Annaud movie :eek:

Best,

Weeks

Thank you Silvy :)
Hi Selby, Thank you for the words.
Ceasar, as always, nice words and comments. Thank you.
Gxhpainter, i'm happy you like the "Jules Verne' kind of". It was a try to experiment a futuristic vision with forms and lines and a thematic from the past with references like Jules himself and/or Gustave Eiffel sort of. Thank you anyway. :)
Thank you very much Coops :)
Hi ScreenPainter, thank you. I'm involved in something like trying some of these ideas on real canvas. Maybe... :cool:

This shot, in progress, is 100 % artrage ! Gollum with a pencil/chalk rendering... I'm fascinated about the idea to simulate so far, this technique.

Best,

Weeks
04-26-2012, 09:23 AM
Thank you so much Gxhpainter, you know, the idea wasn't to produce "eventually" a good drawing with reference, but to demonstrate the fact that with Artrage, we can and we will be able to draw without any paper scanned and directly with it.
I'm focused right now on this "pencil/pastel" rendering.

D Akey, thank you man, :o heavy pressure from now on :p

Dear Mannafig, thank you so much. Here is a new shot while in progress. :)
Hope you'll like the close up.

Gollum's drawing is absolutely impressively and masterfully made (speaking clearly of Your awful talent) and the unfinished legionary is already a superb painting. The background is spectacular (maybe You used also some well-chosen layer blending mode) and the figure shows a progression that leads to amazing results where it approaches a final stage.
Extraordinary again.

05-02-2012, 04:01 AM
SCP, thank you for Gollum. I know we can now simulate real pencil strokes, playing with the textures of the canvas.

Hi Mule, thank you and welcome. I didn't take the time to welcome you. Well, if my job can help :)

Silvy, thank you my dear :)

:o Thank you dear Caesar for everything. You know what, i was thinking about you and your country :confused: Spain too :confused: and the rest of Europe... Strange moment... Happily, we can spend some time to paint and improve our skills...

Hi Speegie, great to hear from you :p Thank you for the comment.

Thank you Mannafig, it's a real pleasure for me too.

Because i cannot stay without posting (i shouldn't have until the last piece would be finished :rolleyes: ), here is a new masterpiece i like a lot.

And i have to confess the 80 % of this piece was done with another soft i practice since 1993, :mad: because of 2 tools i still miss with AR3. :eek::confused:
For the 20 others %, AR3 and its textures' factory.

Victor Hugo !!! A great french writer.

You're going to leave us speechless once more, dear Weeks.

The economical situation in Europe is quite tough for few and simple reason which could be easily removed, even going on to increase balance and market efficiency in our countries.
Main reason is Germany short-sighted and confined policy, who isn't able to change the natural attitude of a great share of its population, so we don't have common Eurobonds, we cannot print more money etc. what would be usual to any country to manage the situation. This allows the speculation of few financial gnomes with their derivatives and the silly analyses of the so called rating agencies (with interest conflicts, but fortunately less and less considered in their evaluations) to put national economies on knees. Also France is progressively at risk and Netherland starts having hiccups.
This happened also because Deutsche Bank speculated heavily on derivatives betting on what actually happened and sold, to earn money, other nation bonds, including those solidly covered by assets and prospects.
We start believing that many European countries, certainly the Southern ones, France, Belgium, Ireland and other Eatern ones will have to rather ask Germany to get out of Euro.
The situation in the various European contries are quite different, so are problems too (Italy has a completely different economical and financial structuire than Spain or Greece for instance), but international anglo-saxon driven finance is usually incompetent and naif on that, even worse they don't care and just pretend to know the picture and the remedies, whilst they're rather a main cause of instability and they were already responsible for the E-bubble in the past and of have triggered this depression. We should rather come to have an international regulation where finance shall have separated tasks and business, no conflicts of interest, shall serve industry and its liquidity and can speculate only at commensurately high risk, for them and their bosses, since they actually mostly don't add value to wealth production and a widely spread entrepreneaurialship and welfare, rather the contrary.
Any monopoly should be broken, including the financial one, the most greedy and detrimental to a truly free and ruled global market where everybody play fairly on the some ground, also for what concerns human rights and sustainability, or just die because of a different, better and more efficient model which is starting in several local areas.

It's an interesting choice of subject, these days one expects Derrida or Foucault or Levi-Strauss, or even Rimbaud, and not a writer who I suppose largely has been forgotten in the English speaking world, and who once wrote, maybe because he was able to see ahead, "L'Europe ne peut être tranquille tant que la France n'est pas contente" ...

My friend Caesar, always a nice word, for everyone :) Thank you. I don't know if i've been hit but, what i know is the pleasure to push AR3 out of the limit.
But i know something else : i have to enrich my "palette". Ok, i like traditional subject (portrait, etc) but i have to try out new art directions. Here is a new test. I don't have yet all the code but i hope it's a good start...

Thank you Silvy, :) for the compliment. I have for you too.

Oh Alexandra, i didn't want to scare you. :(
No, ... It's just that "things" are not clear for me and i'm looking, through the painting process, and different studies, sort of explanations about what's real and what's not... :rolleyes:

Dear Caesar, i promise, i'll make an .arpack soon as i can with the brushes and papers i use... This thread is a lab, nothing more. :p Thank you for your support.

Jibes, thank you so much.


This new shot is not a new one, but a complex background of a painting i did, earlier in this topic. Now, i miss the foreground.. Soon. :p

Caesar
05-24-2012, 06:26 AM
This last one too, as apparently abstract as it may look, is a mine of evocations, dear Weeks.
I'm already so grateful to You for the lessons and inspiration I may obtain from Your experiments (all successful ones and not even a blast from Your chemistry!:eek:;)) that I coudln't even imagine the possibility to get also Your .arpack and your amazing tools to play with. Anyway pls don't feel neither obliged or in a hurry to keep Your promise. :) At Your best convenience and take Your time. My moral debt towards You would otherwise rise to bankruptcy. :eek:LOL

Weeks
05-26-2012, 02:59 AM
Dear Caesar,

Thank you my friend. This last shot is an evocation of chaos. Chaos in the background, maybe a metaphor or an anticipation of our real world.
But i'm working on the foreground. Not easy, and i'm still hesitating between two options :confused:

For the rest, well, it's a place to try things out : ideas, but brushes, noise and colors and to see what's happening then. To be honest, i'm not completely happy about what i get, but i still work on it.

In the meantime, here is a rough portrait i begun time ago...

Dear Weeks, also Your unfinished or explorative pieces are great lessons and artistically valuable.
Your unsatisfaction and strive for perfection even such impressively valuable works do indicate that Your talent is such that You would be able improve and widen over and over Your skills and art endlessly ...
I obviously like very much what You furtherly added and I can see the amazing mastery shown by these latest WIPs.
Dear Chinapete, at this stage and partial hint, the rock star may also be John Lennon (or Yoko Ono if I look to the glasses:D).

Hello Weeks,
I'm blown away!!!!
I decided to make a drink, get comfortable in my favorite chair and look at your entire thread.
Totally impressed with everything I saw, admire the way you would treat some of the work
as 'Works in progress' and tutorial in your presentation of them, freely sharing your skills and methods with all to view.
Which I find useful, considering I just started painting last june. Your thread is a 'Fantastic
body of work' that you have shared with all in the past...and I hope you will start again with this new entry today!
You've got one 'Hell of a' lab going on here
with impressive results!
Would like to see it continue!... A year and half was a little long!
Again...Fantastic Work!!!

I'm absolutely delighted to see You back, Master Weeks, and I'm also so pleased to be surprised by Your style exploration switch from layered textures to a dense, deep, translucent, liquid, watercolor-like new one as much masterful and impressive as the past one even if on the opposite side of it.

Hi Weeks!
Well first!...Thanks for visiting my thread!!!
I enjoyed studying the last 'In Progress' sequence, gives me different ideas and methods to try.
The 'Quick Shot' is painfully letting me know that I should try to line up the features of my faces instead
of free styling it, followed by hours of trying to get the symmetry correct! Yeah.. I know, pretty
basic stuff, I just wasn't paying attention during those courses!
Anyway, Cool Stuff!

Weeks
12-13-2013, 08:39 AM
Ceasar,
for me this forum should be a place to share techniques, specially with a digital tool like AR.
To see any processes is a good way to "learn" something different from each other.
And it's difficult because it's digital !

Painting portrait and academic bodies is a good way to exercise our drawing/painting skills.

From now i would like to try out new subject. I'm working on it ;)

Steve,
Thank you man, it's my pleasure to see nice thread like yours.
You are illustrating very well what i said to Ceasar before. A place to learn and to show things.

Hey, Weeks!
'Jasmine2' is definitely developing into a unique and fantastic image!
Really like your choice of subdued colors! Just enough intensity to suggest
an emotion that she would want you to portray for her. Hope to see her occasionally
rotate back in the mix, as she progresses?
Thanks for the last set of screen shots, the're really helpful tips! Picking up good info
on how to begin a project! Specially for me, just started painting in June.
They're all pretty 'Damn Cool'!
Take Care and Enjoy your

What a fantastic process! You build the lines describing the correct shapes and proportions and, as for the face, You put yellow on directly enlighted parts, green on the shades, violet-grey under the eyes and red where the pinky skin tone gets more intense. This way you get all the advantages of a correct lay-out and of a subsequent fresh and spontaneus brushworking. Clap, clap!;):)
I just wonder whether You build aside a palette to fix the fundamental tones You resume on the various parts.

Coops, Thank you. I guess there is still a lot of work to do to make it better. You'll tell me :)

--

Caesar, hello my friend, of course, it's digital but maybe we should try to translate what we've learned with acrilycs and oils.
The goal for me is to find, as you said, and for these static portrait, a place between something very realistic and as fresh and spontaneous painting.
May be it won't be possible :confused:
About the palette, i'm all the time influenced by the great masters you already know : Bouguereau, Velazquez, Ingres, Vemeer, etc, all the masters i adore.
Knowing that, i mix up everything i can to get a palette i can work with.

--

Steve, Thank you. I'm pretty sure the image you're talking about is not completely finished. And that's why i like this "in progress" process so much, to let me be sure of my choices.
Ant that's why it's a lab too :cool:
About the tips, yes, it's time to show up what we've got. but this among a lot of possibilities. But for a guy who begun in June... Well, damn good.

You are amazing with faces. Been watching your stuff for some years now and it's great. Very impressive. I don't know how long these take but you seem to have a handle on the technique where it looks very professional. There doesn't seem to be a lot of wasted marks. And that shows a confident hand and implies that you have been painting like this for a long while. I certainly hope whatever you're working on this time manifests.

As to the composition, I'm looking at the last pic you posted with the guy in BW and it's a tough call whether it's a good composition or not. It's certainly decent. But you are breaking 'rules' by lining up tangents, like the edge of the building and the vertical line of the garment. That is a device that pushes it a little toward graphics and less a dimensional reality. I've seen illustrators going both ways, and when someone lines things up like that, it's most often (that I've seen) done when mixing elements into a montage or playing with shapes in a more decorative vein where things are not meant to be entered into like in creating a depth of field in a scene. If you line things up like that in a scene, does that mean it's wrong? It's only wrong if it doesn't work. So if you can pull it off, it's fine.

Ordinarily when there are forced tangents it draws attention to itself and runs the risk of putting things at different distances on the same plane thus flattening it out. Your painting is not complete enough to see that though. It's still sketchy and depth is merely implied so far. So it's not working at cross purposes. Whether or not it does will show up at a later phase closer to a finish. But rules are rules because they work a certain way and it's generally avoided when depth is paramount. And artists even go so far as to force avoiding tangents in order to create depth.

Great stuff.

I agree with DA that Your faces are not just exterior pictures. They are very realistic and very deep, insightful, profound, fully credible whatever the style, the chromatic departures etc. Congrats!

Weeks
12-19-2013, 01:43 PM
Hello Caesar, thank a lot for all these nice words. Maybe i like faces, but now, i mean, soon, i'll try something diff out. Bodies and compositions.
I'm so laborious, that's why i need to come back on each shot in progress.

--

Copespeak, very kind of you. Thanks. On this shot, i need to re considerate few ideas about the composition, but i have to waste time.

--

D Akey, thank you so much. More i go, i try to loose less time, just catching the mood of the face. That's why i want to work on the processes. It's about light and dark at the beginning.
About the composition in progress, i appreciate very much your critics and analyse. Very useful because i'm at the beginning of the piece. I agree with you, there a lot of weird things that i have to check out.
That's why i called my thread "lab". Just try things out and see and get critics and sometimes great comments. :o

Hi AndreaMG, thank you guy for the compliments. I'm not sure to be able to take a pen and just draw something or... I have to much ambitions and i want to explore a certain level of complexity.

D Akey
01-23-2014, 05:34 PM
It's sort of bizarre that I would prefer the paintings when they include the perspective and structure lines, but it gives it a particular structural, mechanical, draftsmanship character. Makes the world feel unformed as a work in progress itself, which in a sense it is in reality. Also overlays everything with the feeling of trajectory. It feels to me as if it's a world seen through the eyes of a physicist at the Einstein level deep in thought. Like living in a hyper geometric-centric reality -- perhaps even through the eyes of a sentient robot.

Nice stuff.

Weeks
01-26-2014, 01:43 AM
D Akey, thanks man, i'm agree with you.
Of course this "drawing line's perspective technique" is a good way to structure any graphic creative process which use geometric forms buildings, etc, but in the same time i realise it gives something more to the draft. That's why i try to keep few lines here and there.
I'm exploring all these techniques to be able to create nice deepness in each painting. We have to deal with the third dimension.

Hi Caesar, your comments and compliments are so exiting, so enthusiastic that they would miss all of this forum if you would stop. :) Thank you my friend on behalf of every Artragers out there :)
I think one of the goal of this place is to provide and to show to anyone and when it's possible, the creative process, the inspiration and the techniques everyone uses. If i can help showing my own...
Otherwise, i like this strange idea to give an extra chance to any "paintings" and to accept to come back infinitely on it.
But i like when a finished project meet the attention, the enthusiasm of each of our friends here.

A course and an art exhibition here, dear Weeks. Creations take shape from an evident building process, flesh blloms on structural skeletons and against curtains of evocative textures and brushstrokes. All the process looks simultaneously magic, scientific and technological! F A N T A S T I C!

Really like the roughness in his features, suggesting a character not to
be fooled with, wondering what his career choice was, and how it worked
out for him.....
Well done friend,
Steve

You certainly have developed your style. I remember when you were starting to do all those heads for that game you had been working on way back when. And at that time I thought you had a noteworthy style. But I don't recall you doing portraits with likenesses so much. Now I can see you have that as one of your assets in a strong way. That Trump portrait is great. Would make a very commendable magazine cover like for Time Magazine.

Very good to see your paintings again. Glad you came around. Hope to see you more often.

Sorry my friends for the late reply, but i was in Italy :) near Florence :) lately.

Thank you Eighty ! I don't know if i'll stay a while but i'll do my best.
Actually, i was in London (Shoreditch) few weeks ago but i left out to get back to Switzerland, French side : Canton de Vaud !

Hello Ceasar, so happy to hear from you :) So kind, as usual.

Hi Pat1940, thanks a lot buddy. Always happy to hear.

Hey D Akay, great to hear from you. Well, wasn't Trump, just a political guy, Wim_Duisenberg.
Otherwise, the game project didn't happen. Still very difficult to go after things. Anyway, it was fun to do.

I don't have so much time to paint now but i'll try to work back to my old illustrations. I'm involved in Abstract oil paintings and photography (fashion style), so...

Here is an old one i did, and now finished, i guess.... :) Entirely done with AR !
Do you have any news about AR 5 ?

Best,

Caesar

Your style, even at a partially unfinished stage, is better than a mere hyper-realistic painting, a somehow fantastically augmented reality, , my treasssshuuure .... :o;)
